The Memory Lab Network
was created to help individuals and communities across the United States to preserve their personal histories and recorded memories for the future. By furnishing a free, do-it-yourself space for the digitization of photos, documents, and audiovisual recordings, Memory Labs offer a unique opportunity for organizations to connect with community members, save shared history, and drive home principles of preservation and access. Memory Lab components - equipment and resources – are designed to be modular and scalable, and can be set up variously as in-house, curbside, and/or mobile programs.
In partnership with the Memory Lab Network, California Revealed
will provide support and training through the course of the California State Library CopyCat grant period, and beyond. Based on the Memory Lab Network training model, monthly webinars will provide grantees with practical knowledge in digitization, and help them plan their own digitization program.
This is the fifth webinar in a series of eight webinars, and is for anyone who is interested in starting a Memory Lab, as well as anyone who is running a Memory Lab and would like to connect with others in the Network.
Co-hosted by Siobhan Hagan, Memory Lab Network Project Manager, Shahed Dowlatshahi, California Revealed Audiovisual Preservation Manager, and Pamela Vadakan, California Revealed Director.
